The native backend works fine - both profiles connect now. I checked with
hcidump, for HSP/HFP it looks like the headset tries to connect UUID 0x111f
(HFP_AG_UUID) first, does not succeed and then connects UUID 0x1112

This seems to be clear now when looking at the result above. Ofono does
not support UUID 0x1112, so the connection fails.

My controllers both do not show UUID 0x111f as a possible value, neither
with the ofono nor with the native backend. With the native backend I see
0x1112 in the list. Any idea why 0x111f is not possible? Am I missing some
kernel configuration or something similar? Or is this a hardware issue?
